Bulgaria: IOC Confirmed Thomas Bach Is the Only Candidate for Presidency


The International Olympic Committee said Thomas Bach will have no opponents for his reelection as president in a vote scheduled in March.

More than 100 IOC members were told Bach is the only candidate for the presidential poll at their meeting due to be staged in Athens.

The German lawyer's reelection seemed a formality after around 50 voting members publicly supported his candidacy in July at their annual meeting held virtually.

Bach is eligible for four more years in office after winning an eight-year term in 2013. His final term begins officially after the Tokyo Olympics close on August 8.

Bach who is the Olympic champion in Fencing was elected President of IOC in 2013 and succeeded on the post Jacques Rougeau.
